It opens with powerful, savoury Burgundian aromas, framed by appealing smoky reduction. It’s equally complex on the palate where measured power meets crystalline acidity and punchy ripe fruit flavour. It’s a pristine, powerful and lithe Chardonnay, at once, both layered and detailed, with a ripple of minerality. Give it a little time and the wine settles into more poised and elegant territory, finishing with sustained drive and precision. In a blind line up, we’d have this at a considerably higher tariff.

93 - Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous “A blend of three vineyards including some of the oldest Chardonnay in the country (going back to 1982), the 2020 Chardonnay North Canterbury is seductive, ripe and creamy, with smoky oak and grilled nut-like characters (25% new barrels including Mercurey). The ripe fruit quality is excellent and generous; hand-harvesting and whole-bunch pressing followed by a full year on lees has brought both purity of fruit and textural weight. There’s tension and nerve on the finish, which leaves a salty tang. A wine that has as many layers as mille-feuille.”
